State says motorists should watch for deer

FRANKFORT — Kentucky officials are reminding drivers this is the time of year when they're more likely to encounter deer darting across the road, and the results can be disastrous.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources says deer mating activity peaks in mid-November, increasing the animals' movement. The agency says deer are most likely moving during the early morning and at dusk, which coincides with humans traveling to and from work.

The Kentucky State Police say data from the past five years show that a collision with a deer is most likely between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. and between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m.

Fish and Wildlife says drivers should slow down and stay alert while driving, especially in suburban and rural areas and places where woods border the road.
